Re: (LONG/RAMBLE)Attempting to achieve "Spiff"
Greetings from Ellwood (again)!
% I'd like to offer one addition to the many excellent suggestions
%already posted. Remember that _anyone_ can give an award. If you
%see someone do something worthy of note, there's no reason you can't
%announce at the feast table, "Hey folks, this person did a really neat
%thing and I'd like to present them this token of appreciation and
%thanks." If you feel that you're too "newbie" to do it yourself,
%enlist the aid of your senechale or a "distinguished elder" of the
%shire. It may not be "official", but it still feels good! :-)
The people in Falcon Cree do this sort of thing. For an outstanding
job at Feast of the Thirty, the canton seneschal gave the hall steward
a token in appreciation of his work. Having him come up and present it
during court was a bonus. When I presented my first scroll to the
barony, I was considered a member of the Nottinghill Coill
scriptorium and shortly thereafter, I was given a token of appreciation
by the Baron--it wasn't a title or induction into an order, it was something
in recognition of my service to the barony. I was embarrassed by the
attention, but was pleased by the recognition itself. I could site other
incidents of this nature, but I need to get back to work......
PS: No, I don't work for the BBC, I work for AT&T GIS. BBC
stands for something....completely different than what
you think. 8^)
